Remember Atmosfear? The old Vcr-based board game? Growing up I never had that game, however burgeoning Trekker that I was (BBC 2/Channel 4 at 6pm had a Huge influence on me as a teen), I did have the Star Trek: The Next Generation video board game… Well what if those Vcr games, and games like them, were really gateways to another dimension. That’s the basic premise of Beyond the Gates.
Following the mysterious disappearance of their father, two estranged brothers – Gordon (Skipper) and John (Wiliamson) reunite to liquidate his business, a video store which (besides looking like a film-fans idea of heaven) specializes in horror films. As they dig through the stock, they unearth an old Vcr »

We caught new home entertainment release Beyond the Gates back during last August at Frightfest. The film follows two brothers as they stumble across a horror VHS board game that seems to have a life of its own.
Directed by Jackson Stewart, the film spent last year touring the festival circuit and wowing crowds. It even won the Los Angeles Film Festival’s Nightfall Jury prize. Stewart is a former assistant of horror directing icon Stuart Gordon who has now struck out on his own. Beyond the Gates stars one of Gordon’s former scream Queens Barbara Crampton, and offers scares and laughs a plenty.
We caught up with Stewart, ahead of the UK DVD release, whom spoke of his desire to direct a Lovecraft story, having Barbara Crampton as a friend and whether we »

Make no mistake about it: this was a great year for horror fans. It was so good, in fact, that making a list of “favorites” is almost impossible because there’s just too much I want to talk about. The independent horror scene continues to crank out new classics and minor gems, but even studio horror was good this year: The Conjuring 2, Don’t Breathe, Ouija: Origin of Evil, Lights Out (not my bag, but a lot of people really enjoyed it), The Boy (not a lot of people’s bag, but I really enjoyed it), The Purge: Election Year, and so on. Even better? Pretty much every one of them was successful at the box office. As more and more horror moves are released with the limited release / VOD model, it’s nice to know that good movies still play to big audiences at the multiplex.
And what about horror on TV? »
